Beyond the Prarie the true story of laura ingalls wilder
6 July 2006 | by tj_mike25See all my reviews

This movie was trash, I have read an reread all of the Little house books since I was five years old, also biographies on Laura Ingalls Wilder. I thought they should have found a brunette Laura and that actress could hardly be though of being anywhere close to this great woman. Who was patsy??? What happened to Nellie??? Plus I hardly believe that Laura would ever have been making love in a field, she was from Victorian times for crying out loud. Even though she didn't like the restrictions of corsets and all the petticoats, but she was a lady, and would have never been seen with her hair unkempt, and wearing that hat! ugh I thought that was in poor taste, and wasn't Mary a blonde not a redhead. What happened to Carrie and Baby grace ?? They were just in the background once in awhile. Pa was portrayed as mean, and Ma was so cold I thought she was a loving woman, that was the way she was described in the books. I think a new movie should be made and it should include the whole life of Laura Ingalls Wilder, this movie was terrible and to think I looked forward to it so much. I do not recommend it to anyone.
